Subject: Broken link in FAQ
Hi folks, came here to ask another question and on reading the FAQ, I noticed that there was a broken link in it?

Specifically, this part:


How to pre-insert text in newly created pages?

Perhaps this is what was meant: https://www.dokuwiki.org/namespace_templates
If so, see
https://dokuwiki.org/plugin:templatepagename
https://dokuwiki.org/plugin:newpagetemplate
https://dokuwiki.org/plugin:openas
and others which add functionality

Just figured whoever maintains the FAQ would want to know.

See http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:namespace_templates.

I can neither find that text nor that link in the FAQ or anywhere in the wiki.
Which FAQ page are you talking about exactly? Can you please post a specific link?

This here:  https://forum.dokuwiki.org/thread/702

Specifically, the 3rd entry in that article.

You can find that here:

Ah, I thought you meant the FAQ in the wiki.

I could fix that but I wonder why we have that forum thread in the first place? I wonder if we should just link to https://www.dokuwiki.org/faq instead?
As you can see it's a very old post. I wasn't aware that it would show as "important" at the top of the subforum. That's obviously not great if it's outdated.
I'd vote for removing most of the content and just linking to the FAQ in the wiki. There is no need to duplicate things. If no-one objects within the next 24 hours, I'll go ahead and do that.

Done. (After a lot longer than 24 hours, sorry.)
